Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
Martinique, a small Caribbean island and French overseas territory, is on sale right now from several East Coast cities. Norwegian Air, the discount carrier that brought low fares to the transatlantic market recently started flights to Fort-de-France as well as other Caribbean islands.
We’re seeing nonstop round-trip fares from New York (JFK), Boston (BOS) and Baltimore-Washington (BWI) to Fort-de-France (FDF) from $148. This sale starts in December and has many dates available through March 2017. Keep in mind that Norwegian is a low-cost carrier and will charge you for certain things that are not typically an additional cost on other airlines. However, even with these extra fees, the total cost is still significantly lower than what other carriers are charging for similar flights.
